60th AGM

The final day of the season proved to be too windy to tempt anyone out to sail, so the Winter Trophy was won by  Joan/Jack Hardie on fleet handicap and Ethan Dawson, crewed by dad Robin, on personal handicap basis. Though windy, and a little threatening rain wise, it stayed dry for many boats to be packed away and removed from site.

For those that still have boats in the shore side boat park please be aware that the lake is high, and boats should be relocated to higher ground, or removed from site for the close season.

After lunch the 60th AGM was held.

In addition to his report, the Hon Sailing Secretary’s gave a summary of the recent questionnaire sent to all members. The consensus from the 67 replies received is that the current way the sailing programme is structured is generally acceptable.

Following completion of the audit, the accounts which have been slightly revised from those distributed to members, were considered and approved.
